Manchester City’s David Silva has praised his fellow Hispanic teammates – Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero – saying that they both have a part to play in helping the club to glory next season.

Silva began an in-depth interview on the official Manchester City website by discussing Tevez’s recent break, and the speculation surrounding his future, adding that now the 27- year-old striker had rested, he should hopefully be raring to go at the Etihad.

“We know Carlos well. I haven’t spoken to him because he has been on his holidays. I understand him," said the Spanish international.

“When he’s on holiday you have time to relax. That way, when he comes back, he is refreshed again and can’t wait to start playing again.”


Tevez may well have to stay with the Citizens and start playing again for Roberto Mancini's squad at the start of the season. Reported bids for the player continue to fall short of the £50 million wanted for the Argentine international, as Corinthians and then Juventus failed to recruit the homesick player.

“If he stays with us, then that is great. There are a lot of competitions this season and he would help. It’s easy to create an understanding with him,” added Silva.

Named man of the match in Manchester City’s 3-0 pre-season victory against Inter Milan on Sunday, Silva was also full of praise for Aguero, 23, who joins the Citizens in time for FA Community Shield against Mancehster United on Sunday.

The 25-year-old added: “Aguero is a brilliant player, he will turn out very well in the Barclays Premier League and he can really help us this season with his pace and goals."

Manchester City's first chance at trophies for the coming season takes place at Wembley on Sunday 7th August, with a 2:30pm kick off against the Red Devils.
